Glenn Sacks writes:
Mary Winkler--who shot her husband in the back and then refused to aid him or call 911 as he slowly bled to death for 20 minutes--walked away a free woman last year after serving a farcically brief "sentence" for her crimes.He also has a story about the UK creating a new defense for husband-killers in court. A woman will be able to get manslaughter instead of murder if she claims to be responding to the slow burn of abuse, and she feels 'seriously wronged' by 'words and conduct'.
